MX8x8-3GSDI-Pro is a high performance multirate 3G-SDI matrix switcher that distributes and switches 3G, HD and SD-SDI serial digital video signals. Inputs are equalized to compensate up to 130 meter long coaxial cable (with 3G signal). All outputs are reclocked for stable, jitter free signal transmission. The unit can be controlled either by RS-232 / RS-422 port, TCP/IP LAN or through USB connection or by the built-in website. Housed in a robust metal case, the MX8x8-3GSDI-Pro is ideal equipment for rental/staging applications. The unit can be seamlessly integrated in a Vista Spider or Barco Encore system.
